Companion plants for Dieffenbachia
I am only JUST starting to get into adding house plants to my... shed. No seriously. Don't judge me!
Okay, not really. I'm just getting my toes wet with keeping house plants around and I have started with two types of Dieffenbachia (exotica and camille) (And yes, I'm aware of the 'danger' of this plant). I have managed to keep them alive and flourishing for almost two months now and I have no real issues with either of them.
But what I would like to do is set up a container with a stalk of exotica, a stalk of camille and... something else. The problem is I'm having a hard time finding other shade-loving house plants that might work well as a companion plant for the Dieffenbachia. I'm not overly worried about having flowers, preferring interesting foliage over blooms, but I wouldn't mind adding a punch of color to mix in with the creams and greens of the D. exotica and D. camille. I have some Party Time Alternanthera as well, but I think, and could be wrong here, that the Alternanthera likes a bit more sun than the Dieffenbachia.
A quick run-down on the Dieffenbachia to help with suggestions:
Likes moist, but not wet, soil
Likes high humidity
Gets fed about once every two weeks
Grows to a little over 18"
Variegated Green and Creme colored foliage.
Thank you in advance for any forth-coming suggestions.
